Open Alternative School Hosting Homegrown 2 Benefit Party, Auction

Purchase drawing tickets early for a chance to win an Ooty's scooter and other prizes

The Homegrown 2 Benefit Party and Silent Auction for Open Alternative School will rock the house from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 14 at La Casa de la Raza. Tickets are $20 adults and $10 for children, and will be available at the door.

Wine and a scrumptious list of catered appetizers and desserts will be served, including stuffed mushrooms, tomato bisque shots and artisan pizza, with luscious salads, hummus and even a chocolate fountain.

Live music includes OAS teacher Sam Adams, Sean McCue, Jesse Rhodes and Childcare Bob’s band, Santa Barbara Flash Mob. Fun for kids will include a Kid’s Dance Party with DJ Adkishin and dance lessons provided by Studio B.

Silent auction treats look fabulous, so come prepared to bid — with plenty of fantastic donations including an autographed episode script by cast members from the hit show Glee, and a helicopter ride over Santa Barbara, plus a scooter donated by Ooty’s Scooters. There are lots of very affordable auction items as well, donated by local families and businesses.

Prize drawing tickets will be $5 each — that’s a chance to win a beautiful scooter for around the price of a gallon of gas! Tickets will be available at the Saturday farmers markets downtown between now and the event, as well as the Santa Barbara High School swap meet.
